040 The Young Goodbye

We recorded this episode directly after comedian and playwright Sarah Young's farewell show at Infinite Jest on 20 July 2015. Sarah and Jeff were joined by fellow comedians and troublemakers Levon Polinelli, Jez Watts, Ben Mulvey and Glenn Grimwood. We talked about Sarah leaving Perth for Sydney, a certain well-known comedian who failed to show up to her farewell show, her feud with another certain well-known comedian, Sarah and Jeff's great falling out of 2011, and friendship. Bon voyage, Sarah!

034 Sarah Young, Levon Polinelli

11Jan

Comedian/playwright Sarah Young (Giving Up The Ghosts) and director/playwright Levon Polinelli (Werewolf Priest) talk about winning at the Blue Room Awards, their upcoming Fringe World shows, humour as a coping mechanism, and Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus paradigm shifts. In response to the freedom of speech debate sparked by the Charlie Hebdo shootings, we also test the limits of free speech and decency by trying to say the most offensive things imaginable. Things get a little bit NSFW. Perth comedians Sian Choyce and Sami Shah also make a cameo appearance at the end of the episode.

30Dec

This is how the year ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but an incredibly nerdy novel.
